Make your mind up. Zurich population wise is as large as a few burroughs of Westminster combined. There is NO difference between "city" and "town" really so that you rather stop making something out of what is nothing. Measured by per capita per square kilometer, Zurich is comparable to Inner London. And if you mention NY, where is the replacement for the WTC Manhattan

7 English people are fun, have an healthy concept of privacy and do not judge just according to bank accounts: this means that when they get to know you they do not immediately ask you what kind of job you do, where and then if it's prestigious they keep talking to you, like some Swiss.

I can imagine some Swiss thinking Zurich 10 - London 0:

1. English women expect courtesies which are too passe.
WHAT?! Imagine, anyone, anywhere expecting courtesy for any reason...

Re: London 10 - Zurich 0

Much as I hate generalising (all Swiss are etc etc etc...) the OP has really hit a few nails head on albeit with tongue firmly in cheek. It's also beautifully written (even though it's clear she/he is not a native English speaker)

I really can't believe the groans for this post....... I guess you would have to be quite "Swiss" to take this so seriously and take such offence.

Thanks OP for making me smile.

Re: London 10 - Zurich 0

My first thought when I read the OP was "at least Zurich doesn't have Chavs." When I fly into London on a Friday night, I am guaranteed to see unseemly behaviour on the trip home. Last time it was two mid-20s chavs swinging from the bars in the train.

But anyway, I find people's experience of Zurich is usually related to the stage of life they are at. I've got a wife and kids and we love it here. Even my wife who wasn't so keen at the beginning enjoys Zurich and it's environs now. It's great for days out because a train ride takes you to any number of great places. It's good for kids. I've also had 4 sets of extremely nice Swiss people as neighbours.

Re: London 10 - Zurich 0

I grew up in London, worked in the City, in the West End and in Westminster. I love the place to bits. Every time I notice my homesickness creeping up I go to my home city. But, and this is a big but, after a week or so of not-so-clean hotel rooms, dilapidated buildings and streets, overcrowded stations, expensive rail tickets, packed underground trains and buses, bad food, scruffy people, dirty pubs, stinking traffic,etc., when I set my foot on Kloten's earth I again heave a big sigh of relief.

London is acceptable if you are prepared to spend a lot of money on quality comforts of all kinds (hotels, restaurants,taxis) and if you are content to get your breath of fresh air in the company of swans and ducks.

Narturally there are more museums, theatres, concerts and so on in London than in Zürich - there are also 15/16/17 times more residents.

Re: London 10 - Zurich 0

I went on the Heathrow express to central London for a fairly pricey return ticket only to find that the onward connections werent working. I spent best part of 3 hours travelling on the underground to attend a 30 min meeting. Throughout this 3 hour ordeal I was squashed in with hundreds of commuters. I couldnt wait to get out of London.

Swiss people are only interested in these things. They determine if you are on the DU or the SIE list. No Swiss person says Axgusi unless they think that their mummy will find out about it.

I guess the real question is, "How many places in Switzerland are there, where you can NOT see a mountain?"

Obviously excluding those where you are inside, away from windows, in groves of trees, hedge mazes, caves, etc.

Top of a mountain, with clouds below you, on lake in fog, dead of night, legally blind,...
